Innovative Extra Care Housing

Innovative Extra Care Housing

In 2015 Heritage Care began providing care at two innovative new developments which have been purpose built by Rooftop Housing. Both Dorothy Terry House in Worcestershire and Dora Matthews House in Gloucestershire offer residents the opportunity to continue to enjoy their independence whilst having the security of having as much care as they require on hand 24 hours a day. Dorothy Terry House has been designed for older people including those living with a dementia. Dora Matthews House has accommodation for older people plus the development also includes 5 bungalows for adults with a learning disability. Both developments consist of specially designed apartment blocks which offer their residents:

  • as much care as you require.
  • high quality, spacious, energy efficient accommodation.
  • wheelchair access and lifts to all areas.
  • en-suite facilities.
  • modern fitted kitchens.
  • a well-being centre with café where organised activities take place to ensure that residents can still enjoy a full and active social life. 
  • communal areas so that residents always have somewhere to meet.
  • a meals service for those who no longer want to cook every day.
  • a laundry service.

Apartments are available to rent at both these developments and are suitable for single people or for couples where one or both require some care.
